at this point? [chuckles] >> well, i think prior to november's election, it was a concerted effort to savor guard and protect the president's second-term aspirations. he's been re-elected, in part because we didn't have all the answers to benghazi. dubut let's don't kid each other, hillary clinton wants to be the president of the united states. if he wants to rub, that's great. but she is going to give an accounting for why she was obsessed with benghazi. why she approved a facility that didn't need meet specifications. ey she is going to give an account on what role if any not to send assets in the siege and she meest assuredly will give an accounting for the role she played in keeping the truth from the american people for weeks and months and months after benghazi. the only explanation i can come up with, people don't lie when the truth service them better. they don't. they tell the truth when it serves them better. we are going to find out why they misled us and we are going to find out, no matter how many witnesses we have to call and how many "saturday night live" skits want to mog it
groups for additional scrutiny during the 2012 election, it could jeopardize efforts for the elections. host: we have also seen this headline on the front pages of other newspapers.

. the i.r.s. and these un-elected bureaucrats who are supposed to be public servants, serving the public and community and citizens of this country, abused their power. they abused their authority. when you abuse your authority and you abuse your power, the people in the country quit trusting you. and they brought this on themselves. so i -- it's very hard to trust anything he says. now, i understand that there are rules and laws that we have to work within those and the i.r.s. does have to do that. our organization at tea party patriots has erred so cautiously, we have done everything we can, probably limiting ourselves and not even fully doing what we are allowed to do through a 501-c-4 because of this process. yes, each case must be taken individually. they weren't doing that. they were grouping them all together. i really don't trust the i.r.s. at this point. and i think the american people should be very concerned about this. if it can happen to us, it can happen to any group and to any individual. host: let's listen to what the president had to say yesterday. his joint news confere
apologized for election-year reviews that asked for tea party patriots in nirnames. they found that the targeting happened as early as june, 2011 and this contradicts statements to congress by the former head of the irs. irs workers screened the groups to test their status as charities. >>> uc boy, law students heard from the top law enforcement officer in the nation during their graduation ceremonies. attorney general eric holder spoke to the class of 201ust . fore they received theplomir he praised graduates for their diversity and activism during law school. >> you have alr bto make a difference and have a positive impact far beyond this beautiful campus. from protesting tuition increases across the state, to rallying support for same-sex marriage.

of -- [inaudible] since 2011. which means also during the can election and -- during the the election and that it was withheld until after the election. should the white house have been informed earlier? >> my understanding is that when there is a review as there was and is by an inspector general, that when the end of that process is nearing and a report is about to be released, a notification is appropriate and routine. and that is what happened. and that happened several weeks ago. prior to that there was no knowledge here at the white house. now, before i make judgments about or anyone else here makes judgments about whether, you know, the white house should have known more or others in the administration should have known more, we have to find out what exactly happened. and that's why it's important for us to wait for the release of the inspector general's report which, you know, will hopefully be fairly imminent. >> based on the reporting, do you have any concerns that this was withheld when it could have been a big story? >> well, we have serious concerns about what's been repo
to be a domestic president and i think most presidents we have elected thought that they could do that at the international arena takes control of an administration and bill clinton was no exception. he's took three steps that i think are particularly harmful to the united states interests. the first one was the expansion of nato, the north atlantic treaty organization which was given credit for helping to win the cold war. that is something we can talk about and something you can debate but the fact of the matter is nato was an extremely successful political military alliance and with the demise of the soviet union it brought into question the future role of nato but what bill clinton did without any debate or serious discussion was to expand nato, to enlarge nato, to bring in the former members of the warsaw pact, the east european states and george w. bush took this further by bringing in former soviet republics as part of this former soviet union itself. so instead of trying to adopt negotiating posture with a new russia that it clearly capitulated and thus ended the cold war,

democratically elected parliament and questioned. the senate look into the cia and say, it was sort of a similar moment. i kind of watched their giant national security apparatus of the soviet union come under scrutiny for the first time. when i came back to the states, one of the things that i noticed was that -- i was working for the baltimore sun -- that the national security agency, the big eavesdropping agency based in fort meade, was the largest employer in maryland. very few people knew that. very few people knew who it did. they got it mixed up with the national security an sell -- counsel which was part of the white house. i kept bugging the editors to let me spend some time poking around on the n.s.a. at first they were reluctant and they considered some degree a waste of time. it was extremely secret. the whole joke that n.s.a. stood for never say anything or no such agency. eventually the editor john carol, kind of caught the bug himself and set me and another reporter loose for 18 months. getting doors slammed in our face. we ended up writing a six part explantory series where the
